SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Laughing Boy – Love Like Sunshine
How can a song by an artist called Laughing Boy NOT be perfect for Sunday Funday? “Love Like Sunshine” is a mashup of Jessie J’s “Domino” and an effected male vocal singing a ’60s-sounding guitar-pop song. On first listen, it is so strange that it catches your attention and the hooks just get so infested in your mind that you can’t help but sing along. While it isn’t brand new, it was originally leaked on YouTube in January of last year, a set of varied remixes was recently released (drum and bass, big room edm, nu-house) and it’s gaining buzz in the UK. It could easily become a leftfield novelty hit for the summer. The question is – who is the Laughing Boy? It could be anyone- he is described as a “reluctant superstar,” but some possibilities floating around online are reality TV star Chico, comedian Jamie Howard, Czech trance DJ Joe Cormack, and even Boy George. The person behind the record really doesn’t matter, so just take a listen and sing along to the fun mashup, which will keep a smile on your face all summer long.
